Nicknames: "The Backwards Logo", "The Brown Logo"

: On a black background in a red border, we see Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton wearing sunglasses in jackets. The text "
RCH" is above them.

Variant: Starting with the 3rd episode of season 4 of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (entitled "America's Next Top Paddy's Billboard Model Contest") on September 25, 2008, the name has been changed to RCG.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The men saying a line backwards, which is different in every season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Here's the full list of lines revealed:
  • Season 1 (August 4-September 15, 2005): Charlie and Glenn say "You stupid for playing this forward."
  • Season 2 (June 29-August 17, 2006): Rob and Glenn say "Is a brown, is a brown, is a brown." "Good work." (x2)
  • Season 3 (September 13-November 15, 2007): All 3 men sing "Make it brown!" (x4)
  • Season 4 (September 18-November 20, 2008): All 3 men sing "Clown baby, brown clown clown baby, brown clown."
  • Season 5 (September 17-December 10, 2009): Rob says "Next stop: Brown Town."
  • "A Very Sunny Christmas" (November 17, 2009): Rob says "Sorry for wasting your time and money, but thanks for the money."
  • Season 6 (September 16-December 9, 2010): It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia gets converted into HD starting with this season, so Glenn says "Brown – now in HD."
  • Season 7 (September 15-December 15, 2011): Charlie says "Seven seasons of brown."
  • Season 8 (October 11-December 20, 2012): Rob says "The brownings will continue."
  • Season 9 (September 4-November 6, 2013): Charlie sings "The eagle's born out of thunder!"
  • Season 10 (January 14-March 18, 2015): One of the men sings "They got chicken in Philly!" (x3)

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • On the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia episodes "Gun Fever" and "Charlie Got Molested", the logo's audio echoes.
  • On the season 5 premiere of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, entitled "The Gang Exploits the Mortgage Crisis", the logo's audio is high-pitched, along with the 3 Arts Entertainment, FX Productions, and FX logos.
  • On Unsupervised, the end theme plays over it.
  • On season 11 (January 6-March 9, 2016) of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, a poorly-played trumpet tune is heard, followed by Charlie saying "Brown." The entire audio is forwards this time.

Availability: Seen on the FX series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the short-lived series Unsupervised. It was also seen on On the Record with Mick Rock.

Editor's Note: A funny vanity card overall. It's always interesting to go back and decipher messages that are hidden in these logos.

Logo: On a white wall, we see a man on the left pointing at the golden-framed portrait of the same three men on the first logo. The black-outlined, yellow-colored word reads "RCG" and the word underneath in black "PRODUCTIONS".

FX/SFX: The man pointing.

Music/Sounds: The man says, "That's pretty good."

Availability: Seen on The Cool Kids.

Editor's Note: Not as interesting as the previous logo, but it's still "pretty good".
